About the Walk

Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City's Walk for the Kids part of Nickelodeon's Worldwide Day of Play is an opportunity for all New Yorkers to join BBBS of NYC in support of their cause to raise awareness of the mission, generate funds to support their programs and recruit more volunteer mentors.

This 5K family-friendly walk attracts more than 4,000 participants. At the Walk, the children served by our organization are joined by their mentors and families, our many other adult volunteers and caring New Yorkers for a fun-filled day that celebrates the power of mentoring and emphasizes the importance of health and exercise.

We hope to see you at Prospect Park in Brooklyn on Saturday, September 15, 2018!
